Won't let you fall...

In today's class, we began our third unit. So far, so good. I guess the reason why I'm here is about the whole procrastination thing. I understand where Christian is coming from when he says that he wants to have a conversation with it. I mean, we have this BLOG here for a reason... and I think that we're not using it to our advantage. I know everyone has a million other things to do, but it seems like nobody reads the blog anymore... except to scroll down at the bottom just to see if you're the next scribe. In the beginning of the year, we'd comment each other on our posts. If you guys were to go back to the most recent ones, nobody has left comments. I mean how are we going to be in the HALL OF FAME if nobody reads the blog? I'm kind of disappointed, because I know that when it's my turn to post a scribe, I put a lot of effort into it... don't you guys do the same? Doesn't it feel disappointing when nobody leaves a comment? It makes me think that nobody learned anything from my post, and that I did all that work for nothing. I think that relates to what Christian was trying to get at. Mr. K always says that "MATH IS A CONVERSATION". My question to all of you is, why isn't the conversation happening? This is a whole new unit; we can still help each other out. Mr. K also said in today's class that we need to find ways to catch each other's falls... I am VERY willing to catch your fall, I wonder if anyone is willing to catch mine.

You caught my fall today, Linger :)
And I think that this is a good idea.. we should participate more in the blog. So I am committing myself to comment on each scribe post for this unit. I'll see where that takes me..

Wow Linger, you inspired me :D lol. I really agree with your blog. It is so true. NOBODY has been leaving comments anymore, not even me. Although I do read the blog, I just don't comment b/c... well I'm not sure why. It's probably because nobody else does and I tend to think that I don't have to either, and thats not good. Other people might have thought the same thing I thought. I'm going to step it up as Lindsay said and commit. Come on people :D

What more can I add. Thanks linger for the inspiration. About a week ago, as you guys already know, I was disappointed, because it seemed like the only ones who cared about going to the blog were the ones who posted stuff (including myself). That's why I tried to comment on things, and get your attention. Well, I think some of us really are motivated and would really try to step it up.

Mr. K mentioned how difficult it would be for a person to get rid of his/her bad habits when people are supporting him/her. Well, I think I was one of the main supporters of procrastination before; now, I really want to do something about it. Advocating it was similar to praising those who consume illegal drugs, and if you put it that way, it really sounds bad. Let's battle it people! We're all strong-willed people.. we can do it!
